' Twas the Night Before Christmas...

...and what did we do?
Had our MeeMaw over for some delicious food
as we opened our presents we couldn't believe our eyes
for right before us was the magnificent grand prize

(you all will see what the 'grand prize' is at the end of the post)

So enough with the cheesy poem (compliments of moi!). Our MeeMaw came over tonight to celebrate Christmas Eve since my family and I are traveling to my mom's side of the family for Christmas tomorrow. It started with a delicious supper that Mom made and then we opened MeeMaw's gifts....

I promise, I really was happy! (Mom caught me at a bad time though)

I got some, ya know, awesome girly stuff!

My Wintry toes...

and now......

can you guess.....

what the "grand prize" from our MeeMaw was?

If you guessed tickets to FLY to DISNEYWORLD, then you are correct!!! Now, I wouldn't brag except that I have never in my life flown on a jet nor have I ventured off to Disneyworld nor have I ever been to Florida. I am pretty sure that when my brother and I opened up this gift, I squealed like a baby pig.

 My family and I are going to FLY to DISNEYWORLD (I absolutely will make those letters capital and boldfaced) February 16th and leave for home on the 20th. I am so ecstatic! It's hard to put this all into words! Thank you so much MeeMaw for this wonderful, insanely awesome, magnificent, gift!

Merry Christmas to all of my wonderful readers!

  4. I'm over from Lynette's blog...way late to the party, as usual! Sounds like you had a lovely Christmas....and what a great grand prize from your MeMaw! Hope you have a wonderful time!

    Merry Christmas!

  5. What an awesome gift! :) I'm so happy for you (though it would be easy to be jealous.)!! :)

    A tip for the plane - be sure to chew gum while you lift off. This saves you from your ears popping and getting an insanely bad headache. :)


  6. Anna...you have an awesome Grandma! I hope you and your family will enjoy your trip to Disney! We love that place!!!
